"You're ultimately a passive investor, that's become very popular over the last decade, and then very popular with the acceptance that we are not a crowdfunding site but the whole crowdfunding world and the big companies getting involved in venture capital has allowed people to get comfortable with the passive investing."
"In the DST's you can also do a cash investment into them. It's not just for 1031 exchange funds... So you do a cash investment today, there's that liquidity event, you can have an option with the current tax law to do a 1031 exchange."
"And that's the biggest difference between the DST structure and your typical GP structure or other funds is there's no waterfall split with the trustee; 100% of the upside goes to the investors, but the sponsor, the trustee, gets a disposition fee."
